It wasn't a race he was expected to win, but with the passion of the crowd and the world watching, Mo Farah made history once again.

Mo Farah now joins the ranks of only six other men to ever win both the 5k run and the 10k in the same Olympics. His last lap was clocked in at 52 seconds and, surrounded by five other racers just behind him, Mo managed to pull away while gritting his teeth to secure gold with a final time of 13:41:66.

Going into the race, Mo was ranked as 11th in the world. This monumental victory was simply electric to watch, and will surely solidify Mo Farah's place as one of running's greatest.
